Mexican appetizers and cheese enchiladas recipe

Mexican appetizers from Los Tequeros will make everyone happy. Delicious for drinks. Mexican food can be quite spicy, but it can also be mild.

Today I’m treating you to my favorites from Mexican cuisine with a recipe for a vegetarian enchilada.

Mexican food

Mexican appetizers! It just sounds delicious! The basis of Mexican cuisine is corn and beans.

From corn are the taco’s and tortilla’s made and beans that actually belong to every dish and you get them frequently as a side dish, in the sauce or pureed.


Mexican is also great with drinks? How about these delicious Mexican appetizers from Los Taqueros. Nothing more festive than a warm bowl of nachos with a rich cheese topping on the table.

It really is quite simple: sprinkle the cheese flakes (mix of cheddar and Gouda) over the crispy tortilla chips, place it in the oven with the included aluminum tray and serve with the tomato salsa and fresh creamy lime dip.

And then these Empanadas, South American patties, which are filled with a spicy meat filling or with seasoned chicken, sautéed peppers, onions, a touch of chili pepper – for those who do like a little spice. Great with drinks or as an appetizer.

Mexican appetizers and cheese empenadas recipe

Deliciously spicy!

Recently we got to taste the nacho’s and empenadas and I can only say that we are fans. The nacho’s are so good! With the melted cheese and dip sauce, delicious. And the Empenadas. Both the chicken and minced meat were sure to please here.

The chicken is slightly spicier in flavor so the adults chose this as their favorite while the boys went for the minced meat.
